Melanie Valdez
"My name is Melanie Valdez. I am Braydon Ulery's mother. Braydon and I like to do arts and crafts together and we have attended some LPYS art workshops together. I learned how to do "pour painting" a while back by watching a lot of videos, and I totally enjoy it. It keeps my mind at ease. And, when you are depressed, this can be good for a person. Just to mix the colors, and rotate the paint on your canvas, and make new designs - it makes a person feel good inside and out. It does take time, and hard work and patience, but it's all worth it in the end. "
